I don’t actively follow swimwear fashion, so for me to take notice of a swimwear trend, it really takes a lot of hype and medial exposure (yes, I have seen you, Triangl bikinis!) or a very, very beautiful bikini/swimsuit. Marysia‘s scalloped “Antibes” swimwear is easily both: beautiful and dearly loved by celebs and online influencers worldwide. The scalloped swimsuits and bikinis regularly get a fair share of social media exposure and are universally flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Now if only they weren’t so darn expensive, the “Antibes” bikini set will set you back $282.

Rosegal Scalloped Bandeau Bikini Set

Update (04/12/2017): Found spot-on Marysia Antibes look-alike bikinis at Rosegal and various other Asian-based online-shops. They come in multiple colors and designs and most of them are super cheap, but fit and sizing can be off sometimes when it comes to Asian clothing, so be aware of this possible issue and consider ordering various sizes (especially if your top and bottom aren’t 100% proportional).

Christian Louboutin‘s “Bibi” pump is one of my favorite Loubies from the classic shoe styles department. I looooove the high arch and also that it has this straight column-like chunky heel; I just dig that on shoes, not sure why, but I love this (plus, it makes a high heel that much more stable/comfortable because the weight doesn’t pressure on a pinpoint-sized stiletto heel). That makes yet another addition to my never ending list of shoe obsessions.

Rough Justice is a pretty new footwear brand and for their first collection they have decided to take some inspiration from the master of the red soled heels because these “Kara” platforms are obvious “Bibi” wannabes. Tood bad they’ve messed up the arch, otherwise it would’ve been a super great Louboutin alternative. The pumps are available in black, turquoise, fuchsia, rust & stone suede.

Can we take a short moment here and gush a bit about the amazingness that was Elie Saab’s gorgeous S/S 2014 collection? It was such a beautiful and outstanding collection; there’s not one single thing I wouldn’t love wearing from that collection. I especially loved the floral print pieces like the cute little white shift dressls ($3.000) with the floral print on the bottom below. Such a lovely dress, don’t you agree? So imagine my delight when I spotted an almost identical frock at Choies for a steal price of under $40! I instantly had to recreate Elie Saab’s runway look on a budget level, do you like it?

Ever have those days when you’re feeling blue and need a serious lift? Well, metaphorically speaking these Platform Bow Sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti may just be your go-to shoe. First off, a) they are a vibrant blue color, b) they have a soaring heel and c) they’re gorgeous! Though one might possibly break an ankle trying to walk in them, the mega-boost of height is insured. The bow and ankle strap add femininity and vintage-like appearance which is a contributing factor to the bold exterior. As usual, the price is severely expensive, but that indicates the steal is awaiting you below!

Liliana Paulette-3 Ankle Strap Sandals

UPDATE (06/15/2012): Found a second Zanotti look-a-like. These high heel sandals by Liliana have a satin-like upper instead of suede like the originals, but otherwise they’re almost spot-on and come with a very budget-friendly price tag of less than $40!

Luichiny “Rest Up” Bow Platform Sandals

Luichiny seals the deal for me. Just look, the difference is barely discernible unless you are a guru at spotting the “imitation” shoe. The color is just as vibrant, the bow is slightly smaller, and the ankle strap seems to be in place. The most important factor is that the grand heel is still a focal point, which I absolutely adore. Available in red, pink, black, and cream faux suede, there is a variety of colors to choose from.

Well, the season for open footwear such as these turquoise suede Prada sandals is pretty much over, but I couldn’t help but show these to you because I really love these little darlings. Love the color, the delicate suede, the cut-outs, the rounded heel. They’re just absolutely lovely and still rockable if you don’t mind wearing tights with open sandals.
